The purpose of the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) is to encourage the collaborative, science-based ecosystem restoration of priority forest landscapes. Since 2009, the CFLRP has proven to be an effective tool for improving forest conditions, growing rural economies, and leveraging partner investments to improve the quality and scale of restorative work. Congress reauthorized CFLRP in the 2018 Farm Bill, doubling the authorized funding level to $80 million per year and creating the opportunity for new CFLRP projects. The Farm Bill also provides an opportunity for current CFLRP projects funded for ten years to apply for an extension waiver to complete proposal implementation. A Federal Advisory Panel is required to evaluate and recommend proposals to the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture to be funded. Pre-proposal deadline is August 16, 2019.
